Setting Layer Properties via the Timeline

The Timeline represents each layer or layer folder as a horizontal field containing a name and three but ons for controlling the way the layer or folder’s contents look on the Stage. You can hide a layer or folder (making all the elements on that layer or within that folder temporarily invisible), lock a layer or folder (making the contents visible but uneditable), and view the items on the layer or within the folder as outlines. These controls are helpful when you are editing numerous items on several layers.

To rename a layer or folder:

1.
In the Timeline, double-click the layer or folder name.

Flash activates the name’s text-entry field.

2.
Type a new name.

3.
Press Enter or click anywhere outside the name field.
